How will Nathan Ablett go in the VFL this season?
I think his size might cause a few problems, but he might struggle against smart defenders. Can anyone tell me how me how tall and how much Ablett weighs? Would Geelong try playing in different positions, or purely as a forward?

I'm looking forward to seeing him play and how he handles the game. No doubt the first few games will attract a massive crowd just to see him - hope he can handle it. The expectations on him are high, but I think he'll need to find his feet for a few weeks before he starts showing what he can do.

[quote]Watching Ablett’s first outing, a stunned recruiting official from a Melbourne club suggested that, had Nathan not been tied to Geelong, he would have been the first tall player drafted last November. “No doubt. He looked a cut above the VFL standard.”[/quote] 8O Struth, big call considering a tall bloke was taken with pick 2.
